This contemporary-focused music class offers ongoing private lessons in acoustic and electric guitar, drums, bass, ukulele, and mandolin! Lesson plans will be based on students' individual goals and skill level; however, we will also cover important things that every musician needs to know, such as how to properly set up and tune our instruments, and basic elements of music theory. Any skill level is welcome, from complete beginner to advanced! Our goal in lessons is to encourage passion and...
Students will gain a general knowledge of the parts and function of their instrument, as well as all skills necessary to play music! Specific learning goals will be chosen with help from the student, and will be re-evaluated as they progress.
Homework (practice) will be assigned each week, and will be reviewed at the start of the following lesson. Duration of practice time will vary from student to student, but the more you practice, the faster you'll improve! Practice schedules and time-sheets can be implemented and are recommended for younger students.
Students will need to have access to an instrument for lessons and practice! In some cases, accessories are essential, such as drum sticks, a guitar tuner or tuning app, etc. Occasionally, a student's instrument might even need some form of repair or maintenance. Curriculum is available free of charge, however a student might sometimes want to buy a book or piece of music as supplemental material. Before starting lessons you will receive a basic checklist with any required or recommended gear, which we will go over during lessons!
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Since song choice is based on the interest of students, there is always a possibility that a learner might suggest a song with questionable content, profanity, or even religious themes. While this isn't always a problem, it's important for parents to review song suggestions with students beforehand to avoid any conflict or content that isn't age appropriate.
